I've been getting closer and closer to one full year quit. As it stands, I have just one week - seven days - to go. That's pretty exciting!
I haven't been able to enjoy the anticipation as much as I'd have liked; last week I was down and out with a major head cold - worst I've had in years and years.
But it feels like I've turned the corner and can breath normally once again. I wonder how much worse the cold would have been had I still been smoking?
Now I can enjoy the final countdown.
Anyway - all you newbies out there - I want to see EACH and EVERY ONE of you writing a post like this in the future. You've embarked on the most important journey of the rest of your life, so do it fiercely and with courage and determination. You deserve nothing less than complete success - and you have the power to make it happen.
I'm told there's PLENTY of room in the Penthouse (I'll let you know in a week or so) which means there's NO excuse for not reaching that destination. When I first quit, a year seemed like a million years. Now I know it's not. Soon, you will too.
I've quit one day at a time for three hundred and fifty eight days in a row. If I can do it, so can you!
